Limozine - 'Twenty Greates Hits'
West London's Limozine are back with double A side single 'Twenty Greatest Hits / Surfin' In The Dark' and it's easy to see what all the fuss has been about. With much love from Tom Robinson and Gideon Coe of BBC Radio6 and a sought after selection for the A List on Total Rock Radio amongst their accolades their latest release has much to live up to and it doesn't disappoint.
A-side 'Twenty Greatest Hits' oozes punk rock simplicity in the vein of The Cramps and The Stooges and with a chorus so catchy it makes Contagion look like a bad case of the flu this is a track you're gonna want to keep on heavy rotation. In addition, with a voice conceived of a conflagration of ash and Jack Daniels frontman Limo Dean's vocals sweat charisma and with lyrics like "Hang me on a crucifix/ gimme two black eyes and a broken rib" to get his lips around it's true to say The Pistols would be proud.
B-side 'Surfin' In The Dark' is another slice of dirty punk so gritty it's as if 'Sufferin' In The Dark' would be a more apt title and with its up tempo brevity it gives the listener a good slap around the face leaving definite intrigue.
This single is short powerful and does for punk what Airborne did for hard rock; it makes it relevant again and without taking itself too seriously. There's all the back to basics pared down simplicity and none of the shit. Man, to see these guys play some sweaty basement would be a riot.
